Learning Mentor

Hello, my name is Declan Coxon and I am one of the Learning Mentors at Cornerstone. Becoming a learning Mentor at Cornerstone is my first step to working in the education sector after graduating from University. Whilst working at cornerstone, I thoroughly enjoy being able to help and support the students in a classroom environment. I also love to stretch and challenge the students through the use of PE at cornerstone, allowing the students to develop their social, emotional, physical and cognitive skills. Outside of work, I try to take part in as much sport as I possibly can, as it has been a love and passion since a very early age. I also enjoy travelling with my partner and seeing the many places our world has to offer and spending time with my family and looking after my young nephew.
